Say so long to Azure and hello to The Aquatic Club at the Palazzo. The new pool experience, an alternative to the dayclubs, plans to open at the resort in April.
Once it debuts with its views of the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard, guests can find a pool decked out in white, navy and aqua blues as well as red and green, giving the space thee look of a sports lifestyle. Designer Tory Burch created the uniforms for the staff here. A series of murals adorns each cabana, each sporting minimal abstract expressionism art of the 1940s and ’50s.
Throwback cocktails, boozy artisan ice-pops and a retro-inspired music from jazz to ’80s pop to hip hop set the mood on Fridays through Sundays.
Fridays features a weekend kickoff featuring worldly hip-hop, Afro Cuban and global beats. One pool is set aside for non-competitive, semi-buzzed table tennis on a floating table. A "Connoisseur Series" will feature tastings by invited distilleries and mixologists.
Saturdays offer up a celebration of retro-inspired music with "pop up" moments such as surprise performances from synchronized swimmers.
Then on Sundays, find live acoustic music that morphs into tranquil electronica. A bloody Mary bar will also include red and green snappers, the precursor to the cocktail.
Guests can order poolside spa treatments that can be paired with the frosé. Wolfgang Puck caters the menu with sushi, salads and pizzas. The beverage menu is divided into two sections: the first is heavy on retro gin drinks such as Bees Knees and French 75, while the second is a glamorous take on contemporary cocktails, with fresh fruity vibes.
In addition, throwback snacks from The Prohibition Treat Trike includes spiked ice cream bars and boozy ice pops.
The Aquatic Club will be open Friday through Sunday, 11 a.m. through 6 p.m. All guests must be 21.
